Details

Learn to design Laser Cut Rubber Stamps with this hands-on class using free software. Students will be able to personalize the design with a favorite theme or design of their own from scratch. Attendees will start in Computer classroom setting exploring techniques to design the stamp, then they will get instructor led hands-on practice with the laser cutter equipment. Students will go through basic and intermediate CAD & Graphics software techniques, tips and tricks for building great looking stamps. All materials will be provided to build a couple stamps including the rubber, wood and glue. It is recommended for students to bring their own computer, but the classroom will provide computers as well if needed (tell instructor ahead of class). Students should bring an idea for the design to class and are welcome to discuss with the instructor prior to the class. Google 'stamps' to get the ideas flowing!
